Tympole -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Tympole BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tympole from the BREAKpoint set.  Tympole is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an HP of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Tympole does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Get Loud and for one water energy card this move does 10 damage.  Tympole's second move is called Round and for two colorless energy cards this move does 10 damage times the number of your Pokemon that have the Round attack.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tympole is a basic Pokemon card with a Stage 1 evolution in Palpitoad, and a Stage 2 evolution in Seismitoad, which I'll be reviewing the next couple of days, you'll more than likely want to use some of those Pokemon with this card, however, since I have not reviewed any of those cards yet, I will just act like Tympole does not have any evolution forms and that it will be used on its own.  On its own, this card could definitely be used as a starter type Pokemon in a water type deck since it only requires one energy card to attack, has a low retreat cost, and a solid HP.  However, this card is limited in what it can do, unless you have multiple Tympole in play, so for now, if you're building a water type deck and need one more card for your deck, I would consider using this card in it, but for the most part, I would look elsewhere.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  This card has average written all over it, nothing too great on this card, but a solid card overall, with no complaints from me.  It has an average HP, and two moves that both can do damage, plus a low retreat cost.  Definitely better cards out there to use, but this card wouldn't be terrible.
